The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's songbook--Jesus knew all 150 psalms intimately, and relied on them to face every situation, including his death. Two decades ago, Tim Keller began reading the entire Book of Psalms every month. The Songs of Jesus is based on his accumulated years of study, insight, and inspiration recorded in his prayer journals. Kathy Keller came to reading the psalms as a support during an extended illness. Together they have distilled the meaning of each verse, inviting readers into the vast wisdom of the psalms. If you have no devotional life yet, this book is a wonderful way to start. If you already spend time in study and prayer, understanding every verse of the psalms will bring you a new level of intimacy with God, unlocking your purpose within God's kingdom.

The Book of Proverbs in Plain English

Author: Frank LaRosa

Publisher: AuthorHouse

ISBN: 9781456796372

The Book of Proverbs is the key book in the Bible that teaches us wisdom; "the single, most important thing in life we could ever achieve". If we not only read the book, but put the advice to work in our lives, we can truly become wise. Frank realized that most people have a difficult time interpretting the Bible and never get the full understanding of what the passages are trying to get across to us. "If we don't fully understand what we are reading, how can we apply the advice to our lives?", was his question. With this in mind, he took three different Bible interpretations of the Book of Proverbs, studied each passage and rewrote them in "plain English", without changing the meanings of the passages, so all could get the full understanding. In this book you will find the simplest format, easiest wording, a daily calendar guide, word index and explanations for hard to understand passages. You will have such ease reading and actually comprehending what you are reading, that you will be amazed the simplicity to interpret. Although the Book of Proverbs was written nearly 3,000 years ago, you will find how relevant these words of wisdom are in our lives today. Prov 1:2--"The purpose of these Proverbs is to teach wisdom, give instruction and perceive words of understanding."

Jesus the Wisdom of God

An Ecological Theology

Author: Denis Edwards

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1597520500

Category: Religion

Page: 222

View: 5517

'Jesus the Wisdom of God' brings together insights from wisdom literature and contemporary creation thought in a work that brilliantly illuminates an integrated ecological theology. Adding new depth to the ethical demands of our global ecological situation, Denis Edwards argues that commitment to ecological praxis springs from the very center of Christian identity in Jesus, Trinity, and humanity. Beginning with the wisdom tradition of the Hebrew scriptures, 'Jesus the Wisdom of God' explores what it means to recover the notion that Sophia-Wisdom became incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth, and shows how the universe is altered by this Incarnation. Wisdom Christology then opens out into a view of the trinitarian God at work in ongoing creation. Edwards considers the implications of the trinitarian theology of Richard of St. Victor and St. Bonaventure, centering on the insight that every creature - including humankind - is the free self-expression of the trinitarian God. In this context humanity is revealed as integrally related to all of creation, a part of a single cosmic story. While at one with creation in evolutionary history, humanity is, at the same time, creation come to self-awareness. This train of insights leads to principles for an ecological praxis that affirms human value while insisting that humanity is a part of nature. The whole reinforces commitment to sustainability and a Franciscan attitude of reverence toward God's creation. 'Jesus the Wisdom of God', in a disciplined yet clear way, crafts an alternative to the anthropocentrism and alienation of much of Christian tradition by finding in the very roots of Christian mysticism - and Christian identity - a truly ecological theology for our time. It is profound reading for students, theologians, and all Christians concerned with ecology, and with the interface of science and theology.

The Prodigal Prophet

Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy

Author: Timothy Keller

Publisher: Hachette UK

ISBN: 1473690528

Most people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with the book of Jonah: a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar to most people is the second half of this Biblical story--what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in this second half of the story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden. The famous story shows how, if we would understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, toward people we would rather not care about, and ultimately into the deepest counsels of God. In a time of growing division, The Prodigal Prophet shows us God's love among people, and how Christians must listen to God's call even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.

Freedom of Self Forgetfulness

The Path to the True Christian Joy

Author: Timothy J. Keller

Publisher: 10 Publishing

What are the marks of a supernaturally changed heart? This is one of the questions the Apostle Paul addresses as he writes to the church in Corinth. He's not after some superficial outward tinkering, but instead a deep rooted, life altering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your resume are seen as the methods to make it, the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self forgetfulness. In this short and punchy book, best selling author Timothy Keller, shows that gospel humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self condemnation. A truly gospel humble person is not a self hating person or a self loving person, but a self forgetful person. This freedom can be yours...

Union with Christ

The Way to Know and Enjoy God

Author: Rankin Wilbourne

Publisher: David C Cook

ISBN: 1434710874

Category: Religion

Page: 224

View: 9718

Winner of the 2017 Christian Book Award for New Author Named one of the top books of 2016 by John Piper's Desiring God ministry To experience why the gospel is good news and answer life’s most foundational questions about identity, destiny, and purpose, we must understand what it means to be united to Christ. If you are a Christian, the Bible says that Christ has united his life to yours, that you are now in Christ and Christ is in you. This almost unfathomable truth is the central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Yet few Christians today experience or enjoy this reality. Union with Christ reveals the transformational power of this ancient doctrine while addressing the basic questions of the human heart: Who Am I? Why Am I Here? Where Am I Headed? How Will I Get There? Nothing is more practical for living the Christian life than union with Christ. The recovery of this reality provides the anchor and engine for your life with God—for your destiny is not only to see Christ, but to actually become like him.
